Event Description

AMTA Oregon is coming to Bend, Oregon! Saturday, November 10th at Central Oregon Community College in Bend. We’ll hold a board meeting, which is free and open to the public, as well as TWO 2-hour Continuing Education courses throughout the day: RanDee Anshutz will present a course on building a size-inclusive massage practice, and Renee Stenbjorn will present a course on the legal use of topical cannabis products in massage therapy. We’ll finish the day with an informal happy hour at a local restaurant!

Continuing Education Courses:

Serving Diverse Bodies: Building a Size-Inclusive Massage Practice, RanDee Anshutz (RDN, LD, LMT, NCTMB)

This class and discussion examines how massage therapists may modify their practice to be truly inclusive of all bodies. This inclusivity training specifically explores body size; participants will examine and discuss how bias impacts the client/provider interaction, tools to examine and overcome bias and stigma, and learn about modifications to their own practice such as paperwork, conversations, office furniture and ADA considerations, and treatment considerations to build a culturally competent and thriving practice.

RanDee Anshutz completed massage training at East West College in Portland. She also holds a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics from Oregon State University, completing internship rotations that have led to work experience in public health, hospital, clinical and private practice nutrition. RanDee is the owner and manager of Synergy Health and Wellness in Bend, Oregon.

Science and Legality of Cannabis in Massage Therapy, Renee Stenbjorn (LMT, MPA, Educator)

This class will cover issues related to the safe, legal and effective use of cannabis in a massage therapy practice. The course will cover:

  1. Federal & State law and OBMT Regulations;

  2. Cannabis and the Opioid Crisis;

  3. The physiology of the endocannabinoid system and the effects of topical cannabis;

  4. A survey of research on topical cannabis.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy continuing education courses are more than a hurdle to jump for license renewal. Massage therapists today are presented with an incredible array of opportunities to hone their craft, learn new techniques, and expand their practice into new areas. With topics ranging from new modalities to how to build a business, massage CE workshops offer something for every bodyworker.

For NCBTMB recertification, massage therapists must complete 24 credit hours of massage CE classes every two years. Three of those hours must be in research, three must be in ethics, and no more than four can be in self-care. Hands-on CE workshops, seminars, and distance learning offer plenty of ways to fulfill the 24-hour requirement.
